“Westport is a super fun, walkable, bar and restaurant district. Find a place to park and everything is within walking distance. Restaurants for dinner, and bars with music for nightlife, and speakeasys for a nightcap, Westport has a little bit for everyone. Most businesses are family owned, so dont worry about a corporate scene here! Westport Saloon is a laid back honkey tonk with live roots/blues/bluegrass music and Four Roses is their well whiskey. Julep is a craft cocktail whiskey bar with a wall of whiskey that bartenders have to climb a rolling ladder to get to, Buzzard Beach is a crusty dive with character. Harry's has a great patio and stellar service. Kelly's is the oldest bar in Westport. Beer Kitchen has a huge beer selection and good food. Port Fonda is excellent mexican (not tex mex, try the chicharones, chilequiles, chimichangas, and bloody Maria brunch bar. It's very good, but a little pricey. And there is a Karaoke bar called OffKey. just to name a few of what Westport has to offer!”

“Amazing BBQ with one of the best beer garden's in Westport. BBQ trays (pick 2 or 3 meats), jalapeno cheesy-corn bake, crispy jo-jo potatoes are some of our favorite items. Grab some BBQ / beer and head out to their patio if the weather is nice. Sunday fried chicken is also popular (available noon until it is sold out). ”

“If you are a connoisseur of breakfast food like myself, then this place should be on your BUCKET LIST because.... WOW. Ingredients are natural and organic but my favorite part is that there is absolutely no sacrifice in taste and flavor. We're talking individually selected types of coffee, quiche that will blow your mind, baked french toast, home made biscuits and gravy, BLT's and my personal favorite....the breakfast pizza! I know it may sound strange, but trust me.....you need this. You DESERVE this. ”

“KC is known for it's BBQ and one of the original champions of sauce os Gates. When it's time to yell out your order, trust me, you'll want a "beef on bun, lean as". Your taste buds will thank you. We have lots of great BBQ places in town but Gates has resisted becoming too commercial and excels at keeping that down-home KC feel. ”
